Decorated in boutique hotel-style, this mid-terraced property lies in the heart of a picturesque Borders village. A blend of contemporary living and period charm make this the ideal romantic retreat.

This stone cottage is set in the village of Norham, just south of the River Tweed and the Scottish border. The village is home to the 12th century Norham Castle, which for centuries was central to the border wars between England and Scotland. For even more history, both the 14th century Etal Castle and 18th century stately home of Paxton House lie a short distance away. Berwick-upon-Tweed, the nearest town, lies 7 miles away, and from there you have great access to the Northumberland coast, renowned for its unspoilt sandy beaches and impressive scenery. Head north and you can explore the valleys and rolling hills of the Scottish Borders, as well as pretty towns such as Kelso.

After a day of exploring the local area, the property’s inviting open-plan lounge and kitchen is a great place to unwind. With comfortable seating, a warming wood burner and a TV/DVD player, the lounge is a lovely place to relax in, while over in the kitchen area, with a small dining table and chairs for two, you’ll have an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment and microwave to prepare meals with. There’s also a handy dishwasher as well as a washer/dryer for all of your cleaning needs. Upstairs you’ll find the cottage’s one bedroom, complete with an en-suite shower and WC. With a comfortable king-size bed, you’re sure to enjoy a good night’s sleep in this spacious bedroom.

This property unfortunately does not have its own garden, although there is some seating to the front of the property where you can enjoy the fresh air. Roadside parking is available just outside of the cottage.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This property is personally managed by Nicola.

We spent a week here and had a great time. The cottage was beautiful, the style was quirky and comfortable with everything you needed. There was lovely little welcome hamper too which was a nice touch. The cottage was very cosy and warm, we only needed to light the fire once. The bed was very comfy and we slept really well. The village was lovely wRead moreith lots of walks from the door, and plenty of essential amenities too - two pubs, a fantastic butchers, a little bakery & a great corner shop Hide

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
